Chris Veitch

PhD Physiology, BBiomedSc (Hons)

Chris is currently working as a clinical physiologist, specialising in sleep medicine. He is also currently studying towards his Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Technology endorsed in sleep medicine.

His work as a clinical physiologist involves both the diagnosis, treatment and long-term care of patients with sleep disorders, namely obstructive sleep apnoea and narcolepsy.

Chris previously completed his PhD in cardiovascular physiology, specialising in the study of diabetic heart disease.

Following his PhD, he moved into the clinical setting of sleep physiology and is involved in both the setup and analysis of various sleep studies, along with liaising and supporting the patients who come through the sleep clinic. He aims to complete his qualifications in sleep medicine in early 2025, and work in a research/clinical role in sleep medicine.
